SOLSC: Teacher Evaluation - 16/31

The Slice of Life Story Challenge 
is hosted by the Two Writing Teachers.

Teacher Evaluation

"What a great morning! Thanks for working so hard today.  We sure learned a lot!" I praised my first grade group of boys as we wrapped up our small group time.

"You worked hard today too!" Andrew exclaimed.

"Thank you, Andrew," I whispered through a smile and a laugh, all the while shaking my head in amusement.


Who needs administrator evaluations and observations?

These are the moments that matter.

  1. These are the times I wish I taught the little ones, although middle schoolers do respond like that at times. Thanks for the sweet story, & good for you getting the praise. We don't always get enough of it.

  4. Woo hoo! Glad the students are speaking life to you!

    We, as teachers, make a huge difference...too bad the administrators and law-makers don't always see it.
